FOIA Electronic Reading Room

The Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996 (E-FOIA) requires agencies to make certain types of records, created by the agency on or after November 1, 1996, available electronically (Reading Room). Under E-FOIA, individuals can obtain electronic access to certain agency records without having to make a formal FOIA request (5 U.S.C. §552(a)(2) (2000)). By the same token, records required to be made publicly available pursuant to FOIA section (a)(2) ordinarily cannot be the subject of regular “FOIA requests.” (5 U.S.C. §552(a)(3)(A)).

The FSIS Reading Room contains documents specifically identified for inclusion by FOIA section (a)(2) and 7 CFR Subtitle A, Part 1, Section 1.4, and fall in the following four categories:

  1. Final opinions [and] . . . orders made in the adjudication of cases;
  2. Policy statements and adopted interpretation not published in Federal Register;
  3. Administrative staff manuals and instructions that affect the public; and
  4. Records that are frequently requested / of interest.
